Need for Rhinoplasty
A beautiful face is the innate need of any human being. Nose is the central part of the face that can have a significant bearing on the overall facial appearance. Even a slightest imbalance or anomaly in the size or shape of the nose can compromise the aesthetic profile of the face. It could be something as minor as a bump on the nasal bridge or a slightly wider nasal tip, but it can make an otherwise good looking face appear ordinary.
The attention will typically get drawn towards the anomaly in the nose rather than all the good features of the face. Therefore, an experienced cosmetic surgeon such as Dr. Motykie pays special attention to this procedure for his patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby locations. Subtle surgical improvements to the nose can have a dramatic impact to enhance the overall facial appearance.
In some cases, rhinoplasty plastic surgery may also be required to correct functional aberrations of the nose. If the patient finds it difficult to breathe through the nostrils due to certain obstruction, the plastic surgeon may recommend rhinoplasty as an effective way to restore the normal function of the nose.
Who is a Suitable Candidate?
Any individual who is bothered by his or her size, shape or appearance of the nose may be an outstanding candidate for rhinoplasty. The procedure may be performed on adults, but some teenagers may also be suitable candidates if the nose and other features of the face have developed completely.
Sometimes a patient may be looking for another procedure such as chin augmentation, but the surgeon may recommend a combination of rhinoplasty and chin surgery to achieve the desired impact for the face. Non-smokers or those who are willing to stop smoking several weeks prior to the surgery will be preferred for this surgery.
Nose Surgery Procedure
Rhinoplasty is typically performed as an outpatient procedure under general anesthesia or intravenous sedation. The cosmetic surgeon may begin the procedure by making an incision from the inside of the nostrils or from outside the nose. This choice will depend on the complexity and extent of surgery involved.
When the surgery is performed from inside the nose, scarring is not visible from outside. The surgeon will re-sculpt the nose to its desired size and shape through the incision. Cartilage grafting or synthetic implants may be used if it is necessary to augment the nose or re-construct a nose.
Results with rhinoplasty will become fully visible as the swelling and bruising resolves over several weeks. In most cases, the results are long lasting or even permanent.
